This event will connect Global Brigades chapters from around the area, foster discussions on global and regional health and development, allow for the sharing of ideas about managing and leading brigades, and ultimately empower Global Brigades student leaders.

The conference will be held from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Saturday, March 25th and 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Sunday, March 26th, featuring group activities, break-out sessions covering fundraising ideas and more, as well guest speakers. Lunch will be provided on the 25th and breakfast on the 26th, but attendees will be responsible for their own transportation, lodging, and additional meals. Attendees may, if desired, only attend one of the two days of the conference. The attire is business casual.

We will also be hosting TEDx Talks. We strongly encourage everyone to apply to speak; we would love to hear your story and experience with Global Brigades. If interested, please put together a 10-15 minute talk and apply at the following link:
